Somerset should be toast of Taunton again

Corey Anderson, Lewis Gregory and Roelof van der Merwe are in great form

Somerset's Johann Myburgh poses a major threat at the top of the order

North & South Group matches
2.30pm Sunday

Six straight wins have seen Somerset soar to the top of the T20 Blast South Group and the Cidermen can be the toast of Taunton once again when they take on Glamorgan.

The Welsh visitors are going well themselves but Somerset have been convincingly beating some decent opponents and the balance of their side looks spot on.

They have produced some superb batting displays in their last four home games, racking up 229-6 and 197-7 in wins over Middlesex and Hampshire, smashing 136-0 off 11.2 overs in a ten-wicket drubbing of Essex, and nailing a target of 177 to beat Surrey last time out.

Their batsmen can play with freedom in the knowledge that Corey Anderson, Lewis Gregory and Roelof van der Merwe are in great form in the middle-order, and Somerset's bowling attack has performed admirably this summer.

Worcestershire slipped to a five-run defeat to Leicestershire on Friday but that was just their third defeat in 11 completed games and they look value to complete a Blast double over holders Nottinghamshire.

Notts were blown away in the reverse fixture at New Road as Callum Ferguson's century set up a 72-run win for Worcestershire.

The in-form Aussie has some exciting batsmen alongside him in the Rapids line-up while South Africa left-arm quick Wayne Parnell has made a terrific impact since his arrival.

Parnell's bowling figures in his four Blast outings have been 2-22, 3-20 (against Notts), 1-19 and 2-26 and he will be joined in the squad by Moeen Ali, released from England duty for this game.
